A new pedestrian bridge is being built from this east side of the river to connect to the river’s renewing West Side. An old power plant is being converted to a nursing education campus used jointly by Brown University and The Univesity of Rhode Island. In the meantime, this part of the river walk is full of, well, rubble. In the background is the still active National Grid power plant. In its foreground is the erector set-like Point Street Bridge.
